I had gotten up early on a Sunday to start this project that I had posted progress updates on my website and social media accounts. This video highlights me taking a NERF Cassian Andor Blaster and customizing it with a new paint job and custom 3d printed parts. My goal was to show that with […]
I actually took a little vacation for the first time in like three years. Didn’t really go into it with much of a plan and somehow got marooned for a bit on Capella VI. With no immediate reply, I decided to do some sight seeing… All kidding aside, I really did go on vacation and […]
Wow! Seems like yesterday we were all celebrating 25 years! Back then I was eleven years old and really just getting into Star Trek: The Next Generation. It was the beginning of a long-time love of the entire franchise. It captured my imagination and helped influence many aspects of my life. I won’t bore you […]
I’ve seen a lot of great Apollo 11 posts today. Having been born 11 years after the fact, I can’t really partake in the reminiscing of seeing it unfold live. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have an Apollo-related story to tell… well, kind of. I don’t normally show stuff I did as a kid, […]
Been crazy busy. Too many things to list right now. Lots of projects in the works and I’ll tell y’all about later. In the mean time, enjoy not one, but TWO special 4th of July prints! Have a great holiday everyone!
Something delightfully unexpected has recently developed. I can’t say what exactly just yet other than it will be just in time for the holidays. Stop back soon as I will have an official announcement next week…maybe sooner! I’m excited!
I don’t often do this sort of thing, but for one of my dearest friends, I’ll make an exception. My buddy Jen will be running in the NYC Marathon in November with Team Boomer to help raise money for the research and treatment of Cystic Fibrosis. She’s been rockin’ her training and is going to […]
I’m going to be vague here for reasons that I’ll explain perhaps down the road. But while on the internets [sic] today, I came across a series of videos on a popular site and saw some of my artwork. You see, about a year ago, I had done some preproduction work for a project. As […]
I feel like I’m in that Monty Python sketch sometimes. I don’t mind the canned meat nearly as I do unsolicited email or comments on my site. I realize that many of these “people” are bots and are dealt with accordingly. And if some of these “people” are indeed people, and are trying do direct […]
No real ground-breaking news to report. The day job is keeping me pretty busy lately. If you didn’t already know, I manage this site: Jay’s CD & Hobby Jay’s is one of those “little gems” in Des Moines. More than just a music, movie, comics, collectibles, gaming and more store. Located on the south side […]
